blasted rand paul the other day for, quotes, stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms, i thought back to myself when i was up in one of those college dorms, holy cross in worcester, by the way, where people are up to 10 inches in snow. debates are great. debates in college dorms are where it all begins. what burns in the country, keeps us hot with ideas, keeps us giving a damn about our ideas. so i may not have the attitude of a rand paul but i worship his right to have it. i would never put down that attitude simply because i think there's a bit of right-wing paranoia touch in that guy. why? perhaps because somewhere there are some people arguing about it and i say thank god for that. cynthia tucker and ron reagan is a radio talk show host. ron, i always trust what you think your heart and brain a altogeth altogether. they're putting down rand paul because he isn't one of them and because he dared to question the use of military power, in this case against individual citizens. where are you, a man on the left of this one? >> well, on the subject of

by a 13-hour filibuster by rand paul. he demanded an answer about those potential drone strikes on american citizens on u.s. soil. that answer came in a letter from the attorney general a little while ago. eric holder writing to senator paul and while senator paul was talking to our own chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, he got to read the letter. >> reporter: it's literally three sentences long and he says that the answer to your question about can americans be killed on u.s. soil, the answer is no. are you satisfied? >> i'm quite happy with the answer and i'm disappointed it took a month and a half and root canal to get it and that's what i've been asking all along and it really is what the senate should be about, advise and consent. i have a feeling since this was so difficult i never would have gotten this with routine letters to the white house. >> let's bring back senator ron wyden. quick question, senator. are you satisfied with the explanation of the attorney general, these three sentences? >> i think it's helpful, wolf. and what he said is consistent with what i

have this program and conversation between susie and jean paul gaultier. i feel very fortunate at the fine arts museum because in fact susie mencus' son lives in the bay area and she comes frequently to visit the family. it is always my favorite time of in the exhibition, when she comes and i get to walk through the exhibition with her. it is so learnful. i wanted to share that opportunity with the rest of the bay area. one of my favorites, during the laurent exhibition, one of my favorite moments is one suzy stopped in her tracks. she said, this is it, this is what is true of any great artist or any great designer. when they do something, it can be shocking and avant-garde, but years later, we stand and look at it and believe it has always existed. i think that this is true of jean paul gaultier's work. i know that have been friends for a very long time. it is my honor to introduce both suzy menkes, fashion editor of the international herald tribune, and mr. jean paul gaultier.

mcconnell who is dead set against that. that's why you set the outreach to paul ryan, the chairman of the budget committee perhaps in hopes of maybe doing an in-run around the leadership. gwen: does what happen in washington matter when it comes to wall street or when it comes to these job numbers? is washington action or inaction driving the markets at all or depressing them? >> oh, absolutely. i would say that the main reason that the stock market has had such a good strong start to the year is because washington didn't tank the economy of doing a variety of silly things like defaulting on the national debt. the absence of a negative is a positive. gwen: it goes without saying that there is a lot of distrust in washington. each side assumes that the other is acting in bad faith especially when it comes to this budget cuts we're talking about. >> the republicans are using the c.r., the continued resolution to fund the government to put in their sequester cuts. they're playing games again. >> clearly, people are tired of the political gains in this town. and they want to see a resolution

confirm john brennan as the director of the cia. it came from a 13-hour talking session of rand paul. and eric holder asked about the administration's views about quote, the president has power to authorize lethal force such as a drone strike and without trial. holder responded saying, it is possible, i suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the constitution and applicable laws of the united states for the president to authorize the militia tar to use lethal force within the territory of the united states. holder's response seems to crystallize, the worst fears of many of the administration's targeted killing policy. and the broad assertion of presidential power that undergirds. paul seized on that wednesday summarizing his exchange withholder on the floor. >> when i asked the president, you can kill an american on american soil, it should have been an easy answer. it's an easy question. it should have been a resounding and unequivocal no. the president's response, he hasn't killed anyone yet. we're supposed to be comfor
